Paul Brent is an artist whose work has become internationally known to represent the coastal lifestyle. From his watercolors to his oil paintings, he captures nature in its best and most idyllic form. While being best known for his beach subjects, he has painted landscapes that are equally indicative of his talent to recreate all aspects of nature. He especially enjoys painting local scenes and beachscapes that he views near his two home studios in Panama City, Florida and Seaside, Oregon.
